Palazzo del Capitano Tuscany, Italy

“Traditional 15th Century Tuscan mansion with manicured garden and fountains behind the town walls of San Quirico d'Orcia. Pretty in pink rooms feature four-poster beds and whimsical spiral staircases. There's a cosy lounge with a vaulted roof and open fire plus an excellent restaurant and spa. ”

“Occupying a 15th-century mansion in the lovely old town of San Quirico d’Orcia, south of Siena, the Palazzo del Capitano has emerged looking better than ever from a recent renovation. It offers 11 pretty rooms, handsomely furnished in Tuscan tradition, a comfortable sitting room/bar in the former stables with a fine vaulted roof and open fire, and an excellent restaurant. In warm weather, meals are served in the lovely shady garden.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Antique Residence from the XIV century, the Hotel Palazzo del Capitano Wellness & Relais**** is situated in the splendid medieval town of San Quirico, in the heart of Val d’Orcia.

Location of charm with furniture that recall Tuscan traditions, where modern comfort integrate perfectly with the antique.

Its heavenly garden of more than 1.000 square metres, is an ideal place to relax on deck chairs and sofas, under the shadow of ancient olive trees and colourful fountains. Hidden among bushes of rosemary, lavender and jasmine you will also discover the Hortus Eden, a beautiful corner where you can spend magical moments in the Poseidon’s Waters (Jacuzzi with cromotherapy, 35°) and under the Fig tree “Adam & Eve’s hut” available for massages.

Set in a Romantic atmosphere of a Cave, the wellness Spa “La Grotta di Venere”, on request and given only to exclusive use, offers to the couple the chance to relax in the Jacuzzi with cromotherapy and Steam Bath. Packages also include treatments and massages.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
Run by the same owner, the well known restaurant-Trattoria Toscana “Al Vecchio Forno”, about 50 metres from the hotel, for more than 30 years guarantees high quality food of the local tradition and a wide selection of wine. It also features a beautiful garden for dining in the summer.
